Wedding of summer so far in Killarney
All roads - and perhaps even some flight plans for private jets - led to the Kingdom last Friday for the Irish wedding of the summer so far. Well, the guests did include RTE chairwoman Moya Doherty, her other half, Riverdance guru John McColgan, Today FM's Ian Dempsey, TV3 and Today FM's Matt Cooper as well as RTE's Sean O'Rourke, plus Made In Chelsea's Nicola Hughes.
The illustrious nature of the guest list was hardly surprising as the occasion was dashing John Saunders, CEO of the world's leading PR firm, FleishmanHillard, becoming father of the bride to daughter Hannah, who runs her eponymous fashion, beauty and celebrity PR firm in London. This swishest of swishy soirees at The Europe Hotel in Killarney on Friday saw stunning Hannah marry her partner of 12 years, Richard Bent. (They got engaged at Christmas 2016, when Richie 'bent' down on one knee on Christmas Eve at the top of Grafton Street.)
It was practically a royal wedding. Indeed one of Hannah's clients, soprano supreme Laura Wright, a regularly performer for the British royal family, gave a rousing performance at the wedding in Kerry.
